Seems there wasn't all that much "sneaking" going on since there's video of the event.

Gee, I was a wee bit nervous watching that. Shouldn't she have had a carrier maybe?

I’ve been visiting this blog for a while now. I don’t know why because 99% of what is said here is really hateful and very cruel and none of it is anything I agree with. I guess maybe it’s like watching a train wreck, you just can’t look away. That said I feel the need to comment on a couple things.

First of all, it totally blows my mind that people would spend their time and writing talent writing such horrible things about people they really don’t know at all. Why would you put such hate-filled, cruel words out there for anyone to read? Yes, this is a blog, but it’s on the Internet and if I can find it anyone can, including the children of the people you seem to detest so much. Would you want YOUR children to read these types of things if they were said about you? I doubt it, so why expose others to such hate?

Okay, so the writers here say they are “fans” of Keith’s and don’t like the way his career has gone since he met and/or married Nicole. So why be so nasty about what you feel? To me, if you don’t like the music or art someone is putting out anymore move on to follow someone whose work you do like. So why hang on to something that obvious brings you no pleasure at all.

Other writers here have criticized Keith’s morals, personality and such. Wow, pot-kettle people. In my opinion people who hatefully attack anyone (whether they know them – which you don’t – or not) in the way you do so publicly, yet so anonymously, obviously can’t say too much about someone else’s morals. And yes, no matter how much you protest what you’re saying IS hateful, mean, cruel and totally unwarranted.

And even IF you are paragons of virtue, why is it your business what Keith and Nicole do in their personal lives? Who they sleep with, how they raise their children, the business decisions they make, how they live in their marriage are all things that are really none of your business. Just because someone puts out art to the world doesn’t mean they don’t have a right to privacy. If I don’t like an actor or musicians’ work I don’t pay for it. I don’t go to their movies, watch their TV shows, or buy their music. It’s as simple as that. So why does Keith and Nicole’s PERSONAL lives have such an effect on your lives? To me that says a lot more about you than it does about them.

So they take THEIR baby to Australia. Who cares? So they use nannies, um so what? You have no idea how much or how little time Keith and Nicole spend with their child. You see maybe 1% of their time and yet judge the other 99% from rumor, innuendo and totally made-up stories in trash gossip rags and your own imagination.

Why don’t you put your personal life out there for everyone to criticize I’m darn sure there would people who think you are bad parents or morally corrupt human beings. Let’s see you stand up and face what celebrities have to face on a daily basis.

Yes, I’m a fan of Keith Urban. I respect the man’s talent and I like his music. His music has had a huge effect on my life and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to hear it and tell him how I feel about it. I appreciate greatly the way he treated me when I met him. He was kind and gracious and sweet. He listened to what I had to say and then sincerely responded. He didn’t make me feel as if I was annoying him or that he didn’t want to hear what I had to say. That’s more than I can say for many people in the world. The rest of his life I don’t know, and I honestly don’t care.

But none of that really has anything to do with why I’m responding here. There is so much hate and pain and sadness in this world. Why add so much more to it, and about a subject that is so trivial, two celebrities’ personal lives? Why not find something to be happy and positive and joyful about. I would hope that you all would really stop and think about trying to lessen the hate and negativity you’re putting out into the world. I don’t think you will but at least I got to say what I thought needed

Tara said...

Little- interesting comments but if you did read the blog as much as you say you know that the answers to a number of the questions you posed are there. Many of us are fans of Keith Urban and many of us have also met him thats why the blog exists in my opinion...
on to the subject
Kidman the drama queen - seems the Paps knew when and where she was arriving didn't they and I am not surprised Keith is there too. He had a few weeks off didn't he? I just hope the Urban family gets to see the baby.

don't believe the lies said...

Little~when you constantly put or should I say flaunt your life out there for public consumption you are also asking for people to talk about it. Which is what we do here. Nicole is a famewhore. It's just simply what she is. Her career has been over for some time now and the movie Australia isn't going to save it. So to stay what she thinks is relevant she throws her private life out in public.

I find it funny that the people who hate us so much can't seem to stay away. Why is that?

Anyways back to the subject. I was a bit nervous watching her take the stairs of the plane too casse role. You would think the kid would have been in a carrier to latch into the car right away. Makes me think she held the kid in the car and no carseat was used? I also found the comments about the family getting to see the kid for the first time including her sister. Wasn't she allegedly there? Weren't her parent allegedly there? Lots of holes in the story on the birth of this kid.

The article NEVER mentioned anything about the sister not meeting Sunday Rose yet nor any reference to her mom. It talked about her extended family and Antonia's four children. Extended family could mean her aunts, uncles and cousins.

The exact wording in the article was:

"The baby's arrival was a "huge thrill" for Kidman's extended Aussie family, including sister Antonia's four children who have been waiting to meet their cousin since her birth in Nashville four weeks ago today"

SettleDown said...

I was wondering why the baby's face wasn't covered too - it's wintertime there.

And, the horrible FUMES at an airport (the fuel tanker was right there) - they can even make me nauseous at times waiting for takeoff/landing - I can't believe they didn't cover her face! But then again, that wouldn't give the paps the shot they needed would it? PATHETIC.


Hey KOM - a man would have gone in front of his wife and child so in case she stumbled, you could help - if she lost her footing, she and little Rose would have an asphalt sandwich.

Someone pointed out that we really have no proof yet that it's actually Keith. Bodyguards/trainers usually follow behind don't they?


This child really needs our prayers - her *cough* parents are buffoons.

Well then, using that theory - if you wear a sexy dress in public does that make you a whore? Whores wear sexy dresses in public, right?

Sorry, but that was an idiotic statement to make.

maclen said...

Yeah, about what I expected...sneaking in under cover of darkness... gotta keep the kid out of sight until its time to plug the movie... and considering the interest outside of OZ, Urban Myths, your very small and to the point blog entry is the perfect amount of space for this story.

Imahick said...

Lood Lord littlebitz...if you are so bothered by the blog, don't visit. There are hundreds of blogs just like this, all over the net, focusing on celebs and their lives. This is not unique. So ... don't upset yourself by coming here, if we are so hateful and horrible.

If you are a fan of Keith's, then I find it hard to believe that you haven't seen the negative impact NK has had on his career. But that is something that you can only see by openning your eyes to the possibility that this is no fairytale.

As far as the royal return to Oz, it is exactly what I expected, except I didn't know if Keith would be there or not. And I guess we still don't know.

I find it interesting how this is ALL about NK and her family. I wonder how long it will be before Keith's parents see their grandchild?

CJ said...

"The baby's arrival was a "huge thrill" for KIDMAN's extended Aussie family."

And where were Keith's family? Are they still not good enough for Kidman, her family, and now the baybee? I still find it amusing that Keith has a reputation for going after the trashiest woman in the room and yet the woman he married (tries to) market herself as classy.

I guess there could have been a car seat waiting in the car but wouldn't it be easier, faster, and safer to carry Sunday from plane to car in a carrier or car seat rather than take her out of the air plane car seat, wrap her in blankets, carry her to the car, and put her back in a car seat to head home? At least Nic actually carried her rather than letting the nannies do it. Kinda looks like a football carry doesn't it? And of course "Keith" walked behind Nic this time. He has in the past descended plane stairs first. I'm sure Nic ordered him to walk behind her so as to not block the view of the cameras. If they really wanted to hide Sunday put a coat on (it is winter there) and tuck her inside. You know, the way Tom did with Suri in the magazine photo spread that Nic copied with her sister's baby a few months later.

It's been reported media were camping out at the private jet landing area for days. She knew they would be there but organizing decoy cars, strategically placed fuel trucks etc? Wow does she think highly of herself and think the world does as well. She couldn't make herself look pretty for the cameras during the 14 hour flight?

maclen said...

...ps...

I guess I should mention the photog who got those grainy pics has just become a "5 millionaire"! or a 100k-aire... but I'd say, more like a "thousand-aire"...

getaholdofurself said...

if sunday were under a blanket or in a carrier, nk would be accused of attempting to up the ante for first pics, but her face was uncovered so, of course, that was the wrong thing to do.

what happened to no sightings a la tom or until it's time to promote australia? oops!

...redo...

..as you will all recall, or not for your own convience of course...there was an earlier grainy pap pic of little suri long before her reveal months later in vanity fair... a paps grainy shot inside of a bedroom window of suri lying on a bed and holmes standing at the end of the bed... of course, you couldnt make out the baby's face, as you cannot in these kidman night time shots. Kidman wouldnt copykat the tomkat without redoing every little nuance... I assume she believes this little "non reveal reveal" will build the nonexistant clamor, outside of the Oz media, to a frenzy. And it isnt going to save Austraila at the box office...

Sonora_Melody said...

" CJ said...

Geez.. Keith and Nicole simply decided to go to their own home first! As the Kidman extended family mostly live in Sydney, of course they got to see the baby right away.

If Keith's family are that anxious enough to see the baby, they could easily have taken a 90-minute flight from the Sunshine Coast to Sydney. Maybe they already did and the press did not know about it. After all, the press has it wrong most of the time..... let's see...

- First, the press reported Nic and the baby would be arriving over the weekend; well they didn't.

- Then they reported Keith wasn't going to be traveling back with them; well, he did.

To all the judgmental folks who commented she should have put the baby in a carrier when getting off the plane, you probably have not been on a plane with babies. Those that I have seen want to be carried. And I have seen LOTS of them, of different races and nationalities. Whether the passengers deplaned next to a terminal or in the open like N&K, without exception, the babies were carried off the plane in a parent's arms.

doublewide said...

the baby should have been in a carrier PERIOD......NK even took a step or 2 down before holding onto the rail. and of course, CJ, i'm sure keith was ordered to stay behind her so as not to block the (on purpose) grainy shots.

for me, the NORMAL thing to do in this situation is for the "dad" (if he is) to carry the baby down the steps in a carrier that fits right into the carseat. but we know there ain't a normal thing about NK or this relationship.

this is a ridiculous thing to do.....i'm NOT surprised

i don't agree sonora........i flew with my grandbaby 8 weeks old, and WE USED A CARRIER.....so call me judgmental....this is insane.

WTF? I guess it depends on what your doing in that dress that would qualify people to call you a whore. Sorry but when your a famewhore and are constantly doing things to get attention it's going to be given. Whether its positive or negative. At this point I think she realizes throwing her personal life out there (which she does nobody does it for her) is the only way to keep people talking about her. Oh but thanks for the idiotic comment. I care so much about what you think!

Sonora_Melody said...

"doublewide said...

Ah... you FLEW with an 8-weeks old baby! Where were you when some NK-haters on this blog said you should not take a baby on board a plane before they are 5-months old. :-)

I stand by what I said. All of the babies I have seen were carried in their parent's arms when getting off the plane. Nowadays, most parents even checked in their baby carseat or carrier.

CJ said...

"All of the babies I have seen were carried in their parent's arms when getting off the plane. Nowadays, most parents even checked in their baby car seat or carrier."

I assume these were commercial flights. Perhaps airline policy is carriers / car seats must be checked. Airlines do have stupid policies that make no sense. Like diabetics having to check their insulin and pray they don't need it on the flight. Or maybe if a parent holds the baby they don't have to buy a ticket but if the baby sits in a carrier in a seat they do. Anyway, it doesn't apply to Nic because she flew her private jet in to town. She could do anything she wanted. What we see is what she chose to do.

I guess we should be grateful she allowed Keith, if that was him, to fly in the same plane as her and the baybee and not separately on a commercial flight.

CJ said...

People must not have checked their email from Kidman. Took them until almost 3pm to post the "baby in Oz" story. This is the first US "news" outlet to pick up the story. All the other "press coverage" is by Aussie outlets. Interesting huh.

maclen said...

Yeah, this is such a "local" story...what with the ultra grainy shots from 100's of feet away, wont play much outside of local aussie papers...yeah, and People.com of course....and I expect the copy and paste sites from taiwan and india to get in on the action. And I agree with you doublewide, she got enough of pics actually holding the kid, while still not spoiling the future magazine pic for a full reveal...her media plotting is just too obvious and predictible...

maclen said...

...ps...

..oh yes, which now begs to wonder, now that she is back to her "beloved" OZ... will she simply release a pic, or continue the milking of the Aussie press who are shilling for her failed film career and her publicity stunts? That is one thing to look for...

doublewide said...

Ah... you FLEW with an 8-weeks old baby! Where were you when some NK-haters on this blog said you should not take a baby on board a plane before they are 5-months old. :-)

i knew that was coming and i don't remember anything being said about a 5 month time limit. not that i owe anybody any explanations, but she didn't have much choice. i went as the nanny. she did not want to go or fly at that time. she was breastfeeding.....something i'd wager NK would never do, but i'm not gonna get off on the to nurse or not to nurse subject.

as to where i've been, i have been somewhat ill and have not posted much.

i still don't think NK has a maternal bone in her body, fly or not. i think she exercised to excess for her prescious career. and she would sacrifice ANYTHING and i mean ANYTHING for her career. she contradicts herself at every turn (basically lies).

anyway back to the subject - she needed IMO to use a carrier...what she did was very dangerous. but the show must go on, eh?

Imahick said...

OK...from a legal point of view, it is LEGAL to carry a child during flight "in arms" up til the age of 2 yr. Is it safe? I would say that it is not. There have been many an accident in aircraft where by babes in arms were found hurled through the air and far away from Mum or Dad after the impact. However, we don't know that Sunday wasn't in a carrier during the flight, or at least the critical stages of flight.

As far as carrying babies off planes, I've seen some in carriers and some in arms. The stairs on a private jet are steep, and it is quite easy to trip.

It's also true that usually Keith gets off first. Why not this time, especially if NK was carrying Sunday in her arms?

I guess we'll never know why they deviated from the norm...but I will bet it was so that the Queen could emerge with babe in arms, so that her subjects would have a good view. That is just an opinion, but I honestly believe that is the case.

As far as the hiding of Sunday Rose...I don't think that the skeptics thought NK would hide her away. But I do think that we expect that there will be no "showing" of the child except "by veil of night" because it elevates the curiosity. It makes the paps want a picture even more. This was no picture. She could have been carrying a cabbage patch doll...we'd never know.

As far as Keith's family not seeing Sunday Rose...these people, who were in his life regularly pre-NK, are rarely seen with him (or her) ... in fact, there has been no confirmed sighting since he did a show in Brisbane in May 07. Why is that?

No one really knows. But we sure see them with HER family...and hear about HER family...and note that he spends all the holidays with HER family. They have singalongs with HER family and they have dinners with HER parents and go out to birthday parties for HER sister. I could go on.

I don't know if the Urbans don't feel welcome, if NK purposely alienates them, or if they choose to stay clear of the circus. But I am honestly really surprised that Keith's parents haven't been either in Nashville or in Sydney. They are not flying under the radar...they were interviewed after Sunday was born. So...I think if they were there, we'd know. So...NK's extended family will see Sunday Rose and Keith's own parents have not. Something is not right, in my opinion.

just going off of what i've been reading here for months since i don't follow tom and katie. you got my curiosity up though. the suri vf photos hit the web a few weeks after the grainy photo it seems you're referring to. if nk were "redoing every little nuance," she would have waited several months and done the grainy unveiling during the light of day with a vf spread in the can.

realitycheck said...

Umyths that one sentence statement is the best youve got? Well you should take your own advice.

Tara said...

UM has a point
why should anyone care about a couple
of wealthy people flying over in their own private jet (well the one the wifes ex husband bought her) with their newborn daughter? Because Nicole Kidman wants them to care.
Why is Keith covering up his face?
As for the elder Urban's if it is important for Nicole to exploit them she will- she could care less about them.
oh and we still haven't seen the baby have we??

CJ said...

"As for the elder Urban's if it is important for Nicole to exploit them she will- she could care less about them."

I'm still not convinced the "statements" from Shane and mum after SR's birth were legitimately from them. In Keith's entire career Shane has NEVER talked or given statements to the press. Why would they go talking now and to tabloids at that? I wouldn't put it past NK to release statements for them and put their name on it if she thought it would benefit her.

maclen said...

tara said...
"Why is Keith covering up his face?"

Ha! The orb must be embarrassed by the whole charade... as the article states...."In a carefully constructed and covert plan, Kidman and her singer husband Keith Urban slipped into Sydney under the cover of darkness - only to be greeted by a large media pack at the Kingsford Smith jet base."

... carefully constructed and covert plan? Who planned that? Inept team kidman? yet they still got pics...well grainy pics and blurry video. And once again, it all falls on whether she does just release a pic... like she did with the marriage pic... or she intends to shill the kid for her professionally failed career with these little teasers on behalf of the oz press...

Casse Role said...

"Why is Keith covering up his face?"

I would like to know that. Are we sure this is him???

maclen said...

Casse Role said...

yeah you could be right casse role, maybe it was a "covert" orb...a look alike... a double... a "dummy' orb to throw off the press in the grand "covert plan" .. or maybe, just maybe, in a twisted play on dumas' "Man in the iron mask" and the theories of the masked man in the bastille and his supposed relationship to king Louis XIV... the man exiting kidman's private jet... covering his face... unwilling to reveal his identy... is perhaps.....wait for it... the true father of the next princess of Aussieland!! Now as to the question of whether it was the orb or not... your guess is as good as mine...because that turned out to be some carefully planned and covert plan return didnt it!

CJ said...

With plenty of family to leave the baby with NK will be out and about begging for photo ops ASAP. She did lay low in Nashville for a whole, what? One? Two weeks? If Keith is with her it might have been him. Or he might fly in - commercially of course - during his "touring break". If he never materializes he 1. isn't there 2. is hiding out 3. has the sense to take SR and visit his parents and stay out of the flash bulb glare or 4 stayed in Nashville to work on that "upcoming album". Time will tell...

CJ said...

Let the Aussie PR campaign commence.

http://www.okmagazine.com/news/view/8306

First-time parents Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman surprised a lot of Australian radio listeners today when they called in to a popular Sydney morning show to talk about their newborn baby girl Sunday Rose.

"She looks like Keith," Nicole told hosts Kyle and Jackie O of Breakfast With the Stars. "I think she does."

Her country superstar hubby wasn't quite so eager to agree with that, saying, "Well, she's a bit of a mix."

And while the audience couldn't get a glimpse of the baby girl, Nicole did say that "She's got a little bit of hair," with a "bit of a reddish tint."

The realities of parenthood are seeping in for the couple, who admit that Sunday is feeding every three hours, so they're not getting much beauty sleep. "But it's a solid three hours," joked Keith.

As for the delivery, Nicole says things went "very smoothly, surprisingly... We had wonderful nurses at the hospital."

The couple are in Sydney so baby Sunday can meet up with all her grandparents.
we brought her back to meet the grandparents. And while they're in town, they've made a public plea to the press to give them some space, "so we can walk around our town."

"I get the interest," said Keith, talking about the horde of cameras and reporters who are aching to get the first shots of Sunday. "But at the same time, it's our little girl... Would you do that to anybody else's child?"

Baby Sunday was born on July 7 in Nashville. The good news was announced by Keith on his personal website.

CJ said...
"Let the Aussie PR campaign commence."

Oh yes, a "radio" phone in... and no pressure whether to maybe reveal the kid, like no unwanted questions whether they have a picture... so they will call a radio station and talk about the kid, but a decent pic is just too invasive on their privacy? This kid is just another PR tool for kidman... kidman will reveal this kid only to try and promote her troubled movie... Why? Because that is the purpose of having a baby for kidman... self promotion...

i could have sworn shane and his wife spoke to reporters when nk and keith were engaged or married.

..ps..

...oh yeah, and that public plea for space from the media is so that kidman can get in her photo ops...who believes kidman will take her baby out for a walk? Phoney grandstanding.... I dont recall any media circus when she was in Nashville...or any "departing" beloved nashville paps photos ....but like I said... she is just a local story being hyped to the hilt...only the aussie press seem to care what they do...

CJ said...

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=610373

A picture from last night leaving the airport. Both Keith and Nic are looking out the same direction and smiling - sure signs they want to be left alone and not photographed. So Nic is in the back seat sitting in the very center. Umm, where is the car seat and baby?

CJ said...

How can Nic wear the exact same workout outfit in Summer TN where it's 90+ degrees and winter OZ? No heavy jackets or coats on either one of them. I guess winter doesn't get cold in Oz? She sure is working hard to "protect the privacy of her baby" isn't she. But then I guess if SR is hidden under a blanket mom can smile for the photogs.

maclen said...

boy oh boy... some quotes from that radio interview are just too hilarious!

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=610373

"She's tiny — she's not a doll, she's a real little thing."
(glad you finally figured out that one rookie mom!)

"When host Kyle Sandilands asked how far back they wanted the media to stay, Kidman said: "Not in her face — our faces — it's scary for her, she's tiny, a tiny little thing""
(perhaps if you hadnt have starved the kid to keep your anorexic body, she'd be a little more substansive)

"I'm embarrassed now. That's too much information on a breakfast show."
(really, but embarrassement is not enough to keep you from voluntarily calling in and mouthing off?

...now a few from the orb...

A happy Urban told hosts Sandilands and Jackie O that Sunday Rose "was just awesome".

"Anybody out there who's got kids knows it's just a certain kind of feeling that you can only experience when you do it — we're stoked," he said.
(Awesome? Stoked? What are you orb? 13 years old? Better get back to your nintento gameboy your mommy gave you quick... unless youve saved your game!)

This is what happens when half wits are celebs but are too inept to remain successfull... they bring another poor kid into the world to talk about to radio stations DJs and soon will have help promote their lame products... cds and films...

CJ said...

Yeah, I loved how Nic said "We've said we listen to your show so we're calling in to prove it." LMFAO! Nic, all that proves is you, or someone around you, knows how to dial a phone. Or push the speed dial button.

Here's their chance to say "Stay 10 feet back." and nope, fumbled that ball.

How do they know flashes in SR face would scare her? She's never been out in public for photogs to swarm her and take pics. She might like it as much as mom does. But then it won't happen by common street side photogs before Oct or Nov. Only a magazine photographer.

maclen said...

Well, cj kidman is also quoted as saying...

"Keith and I are both just appealing to the press to give us a little space so we can walk around Sydney and show the baby our town," Kidman said."

To begin with, I thought Nashville was their town... once again, speaking out both sides of their... well mouths...whichever town they are in is "theirs"... so I guess come time for kidman's next photo op, everyone can expect to see their baby out amoung the masses? That is the true test, kidman actually said so... and then again, kidman may yet dress sunrey up as her favorite mummy... and still save the money shot for later...well, not money shot...they couldnt get any money...but the eventual promo shot....

maclen said...

...just did another google news search on kidman's grand homecoming... on the 1st page,there are 5 sites from OZ, 1 site from india...one site from the united arab emirates mention of kidman in an extreme celeb pregnancy diet story...and of course another story from People.com... the only likely sites that care about this story....

maclen said...

...So then, kidman spent the past week laying low, carefully strategizing...or inept team kidman did to be exact, a covert plan to "sneak" into Oz... only to be met with a gaggle of press which got pics...granted, grainy pics... but also video to boot... and they drew up an Aussie publicity touring schedule, which apparently began the day after arriving, which was calling into a radio station in the guise of pleading for space and privacy... and then proceed to promote their new baby in which kidman claimed she "revealed too much!" and she "really" looks like the orb... to which orb insists, she looks like both of them... and she's so very very tiny... and paps camera flashes scare her new baby...well all I can say is I'd hate to speculate what a "actual" media opportunist would reveal to the press. Seeing that kidman claims to believe that selling a pic for a magazine is distasteful, but selling the kids size, fears, and appearance on a "morning breakfast show" for promotion is so very tasteful. It's not very convincing...or believable...

notachance said...

I'll tell ya what, Shirt is at #2 on the charts right now, if they release a pic that song goes #1 for sure.

If any shilling is to be done, for once let it be for his career!

don't believe the lies said...

Remember the days when he wouldn't have had to stoop so low and release a picture of some kid and his music did it all on its own? Although I guess he does need a career boost. He hasn't had a number one is years. Sad really.

Melinda said...

When I listened to the interview I thought I heard a slip up from Nicole. The part when asked if the birth was smooth and she answered with something like if your mom and sisters have smooth births....then what I heard was "luckily my sister has four children so she she was able to...". Her sister was able to what? Deliver for her? I read the transcripts and they do not match but I know that's what I heard. I think she caught herself and played it very cool but then said she was getting embarrassed and giving too much info. I'm just not convinced that she gave birth and wanted to know what anyone else thinks. Anyone else hear what I did?

melinda, sorry but Antonia had been photographed during Nicoles pregnancy. There was no way Antonia was ever pregnant during that time.

maclen, sticking your baby's mug on the cover of a mag and talking about them in public are two entirely different things. We all know that but of course it gets twisted here in an attempt to make NK look bad. Get real!

maclen said...

There is just too many pretty questionable statements from those two halfwits in that radio call in, it would take so long... what is becoming apparent in the photo ops is that they will be carrying their baby in their arms, carefully "bundled" up for the duration or till kidman gets back to work...and dont think the non aussie press is catching on to that fact...here:

and here:

...but the reason they will be carrying her in their arms it seems, and not say in a baby carrier, they want to make sure if a pap does happen to get that "between 100 k to 5 million dollar" imaginary figure first clear photo of the baby, they will also be in the pics. Parading the kid for the aussie paps in a "peek a boo, but you cant see her" display, which naturally and quite readily would be known to anyone ... even halfwits... to only spur the oz media on to circle like vultures in a frenzy to get that first pic... but that is presisely the route I certainly expect kidman the media opportunist to take.

yep, maclen, and true to form NK is taking the big PR route....

why couldn't antonia have come to see her, keith and the bayyybee. instead they just HAD to go out and be seen.....

Exactly! If it was so private that they had to come in at night etc.
Then why on Earth call a radio station to let everyone know they are here. Why go out and TAKE THE CHANCE that they may be seen and photographed???
And yes, before anyone says that they are able to go visiting and such, I agree but--- I don't see why they couldn't have the company to come see them, especially since they don't want pics of the baby.

Well doublewide... oh yes, and welcome back... I'm so glad your feeling better! Well, the reason is pretty obvious actually. Kidman wanted to show her month old aunties fabulous home... maybe get the baby's opinion on ideas for her baby room from the examples of her new cousins baby rooms...because remember, she is not a doll... next photo op is they will take their month old sight seeing the haunts in "their" town... which they can so easily do now because they appealed to the oz paps to give them room to do so on a radio baby promo call in... seriously, kidman is so lousy and so obviously tranparent at all this...but it all goes back to her not being able to get her price for the pics...although I fully expected her to go the PR milking route, she was actually forced into it by not having any takers for her photos. All the other new celeb parents... jolie, alba, mcConaughey...and the rest I cant recall off hand... who sold and published their pics already, are now all pap frenzy free of baby pic hunters hounding them at their every move... but kidman? She is pleading to the Oz press to please give them space... so what does that make them? Halfwits or media opportunist? Popularity deprived or paps baiting? I say all of the above!

doublewide said...

thanks for the welcome back maclen....i still have my moments!

ok, now NK's comments in those CALLED IN interviews were just hilarious.....my favorite is "she's not a doll".......she's just tiny....so very tiny....looks like keith blah blah

well, antonia may not have been the surrogate, but i betcha she provided the egg

not anon said...

I can't believe I'm about to defend KUNK - Antonia is a single mom with 4 kids. It's easier for KUNK to visit her then have her schlep all her kids to them.

I hope Grandma & Grandpa Urban get to see their grandchild in person before her picture is splashed all over OZ. It's sad they haven't met the baby yet. Think of all the time his mom gave up with her other grandchildren while she was holding Keith's hand in the US. From outward appearances his family is pretty low on his priority list these days.

doublewide said...

while i agree with you not anon, i still say they make a plea and then go OUT....now that's just PURE PR.

antonia has enough money to leave the youngest or more with a nannie. it's not like she's like the rest of us without the means to do that.

anybody remember why she and angus divorced? talk about sad.....shortly after that 4th one was born

doublewide said...

ok i may have misspelled nanny....i still don't feel all that great LOL

not anon said...

dw - I was under the impression the whole point of the visit was for SURO to met her biological cousins.

The call to the radio station was plain stupid. There was no point to it other than to draw attention to themselves. I half wonder if she isn't trying to add more fuel to the fire some legislature in OZ has been stoking. I read somewhere they're considering legislation to protect celebrities from the paps.

From Getty: "Australian actress Nicole Kidman holds her new born Sunday Rose Kidman Urban in the rear of her car following a visit to her sister Antonia Kidman's residence on August 7, 2008 in Sydney, Australia."

Are car seats not mandatory in Oz? I can't believe after she harped on and testified in court "We were chased. I was so scared. I thought we might die." that they aren't using one. Is she trying to get the baby killed? It happens all the time.

maclen said...

As I mentioned after reading the quotes of the radio interview, cj, give these two an IQ test. Apparently guarding that the paps may unintentionally get a pic of their baby, they want to be sure they are included in the pics...so kidman holds the baby in her arms in the backset of the car...she carries the baby in her arms down the stairs of the jet... (anyone else get visions of gerald ford?) have not as yet seen using a baby carrier? Self promotion trumps all semblance of safety precauctions or common sense.

well, i suppose you're correct. my bad.....see, my health is in question LOL

doublewide said...

there is no freaking way the new parents i know these days would EVER hold the baby in the car...NEVER.....

you're right CJ....NK is a total nutter if you ask me, and so is her water boy.....

notachance said...

"Are car seats not mandatory in Oz?"

Good question cj. I can't imagine that they are not. And even if they are not mandatory, I'm sure it's customary and some news station should bring them to task on it.
